5 Stocks To Add As Analysts Expect Market Volatility in the Future

Equity markets have been erratic since they underwent an endless rebound from a panic-inducing low in March 2020 to a high in October 2021. Over the past few weeks, the markets have experienced some turbulence. The indices have often tried to hold onto their gains but have been unable to do so because of external and internal factors. According to Amarjeet Maurya, AVP – Mid Caps at Angel One Ltd.: "Going forward, we expect the market to remain volatile in the near term due to increasing inflation, a rise in interest rates, and higher commodity costs that would have an impact on the earnings. The market would continue to be under pressure due to persistent global uncertainties like the protracted Russian and Ukraine war, global inflation, and increased interest rates.

This year, inflation has become the main worry. Given their capacity to absorb some of the inflationary impacts, larger companies are better positioned to overtake midsized ones in the affected areas.

So, central banks increased interest rates to combat inflationary pressures. The Fed could raise interest rates by 50 basis points each in June and July, according to yesterday's minutes from its meeting on May 3–4, which were made public after Indian trading hours on Wednesday. However, the minutes did not give any specific direction for rate increases after those two months.

The minutes had little effect because markets anticipated two rate increases of 50 basis points over the following few months. However, experts predict that volatility will persist when these reasons cause market participants to become uneasy.

What Investors Should Do in Such a Volatile Market?

Investors, particularly those who participated during the post-Covid bull market, must taper down their expectations and work hard to attain a fair rationale, according to Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investment Ltd. When the market is down and uncertain is one of the finest moments to buy equities. Investment opportunities are excellent in the current atmosphere of uncertainty and pessimism because the risk-to-reward ratio has improved. However, we advise investing gradually and utilizing the "buy on dip" technique.

What Stocks To Invest in During Volatility?

The market is anticipated to remain volatile shortly due to higher inflation, an increase in interest rates, and higher commodity prices, all of which will have an impact on earnings, according to Amarjeet Maurya, AVP - Mid Caps, Angel One Ltd. He recommends five stocks that one should buy in this situation.

Ashok Leyland

CMP- Rs 141 | Target Price-Rs 164 | Upside- 16 per cent

With a 32% market share in the MHCV segment, Ashok Leyland Ltd (ALL) is one of the top players in the Indian CV market. The business is also well-represented in the quickly expanding LCV market. While the demand for LCVs has been consistently increasing since the pandemic, the demand for MHCVs has also begun to improve in recent months, just in time for the second lockdown. We rank the stock as a BUY because we think the company is perfectly situated to benefit from the government's voluntary scrappage program and the growing resurgence in the CV segment.

Federal Bank

CMP-Rs 64 | Target Price-Rs 135 | Upside-60 per cent

With total assets of Rs. 1.9 lakh crore, deposits of Rs. 1.56 lakh crore, and a loan book of Rs. 1.2 lakh crore in F21, Federal Bank is one of India's largest old-generation private sector banks. Over the past few years, the bank's NPAs have been stable, with GNPA for Q3FY21 at 3.38 percent and NNPA ratio at 1.14 percent. The PCR at the end of Q3FY21 was 67%, which is what we consider to be sufficient. 1,500–1,600 crore is the estimated restructuring book, of which Rs. 1,067 crores has already been restructured. In contrast to earlier predictions, which called for a comprehensive restructuring of Rs. 3,500-3,500 crore


CMP-Rs 1,319 | Target Price-Rs 1,859 | Upside- 41 per cent

With an asset book of Rs. 11.3 lakh crore and a deposit base of Rs. 13.4 lakh crore in FY21, HDFC Bank is India's largest private sector bank. The Bank's loan book is extremely evenly distributed, with retail making up 46% of the loan book and wholesale making up about 54% of the asset book. The second Covid wave had an influence on Q1FY22 figures and increased GNPA/NNPA by 15/8bps QoQ to 1.5% and 0.5% of advances, respectively.

Given the bank's best-in-class asset quality and anticipated recovery in growth from Q2FY22, as well as its attractive valuations at 3.0xFY23 adjusted book, which are below historical averages, we are optimistic about the company. With this valuation, we arrive at a target price of Rs. 1859 for the stock. representing

HCL Technologies

CMP-Rs 992 | Target Price-Rs 1,466 | Upside One of the top four Indian-based IT services providers, HCL Tech (HCLT), offers a wide range of services, including ADM, enterprise solutions, infrastructure management services, etc. Strong contract wins should contribute to growth in the services sector, which should more than make up for any decline in the goods sector caused by agreement signing delays. Given its position as the industry leader in infrastructure management, the company currently trades at a P/E ratio at CMP of 21.5xFY23 EPS forecast, representing a significant discount to other large-cap IT giants like Infosys and TCS.

Oberoi Realty

CMP-Rs 788 | Target Price-Rs 1,250 | Upside- 59 per cent

Real estate firm Oberoi Realty has business activity in both residential and commercial real estate, with a focus on the MMR region. The company released a great set of financial results for Q2FY22, and we anticipate that residential real estate growth momentum will continue into the following two quarters, just as it did in Q3FY22. It is the owner of Commerz (1.1 MSF), the Westin Hotel, and Oberoi Mall (0.5 MSF) (269 room keys). In CY2022, we anticipate an improvement in occupancy rates. In India, there has been good consolidation toward the top 10 businesses, who now own 11.2 percent of the market share, up from 5.4 percent in 2017. The top 10 players, in our opinion, will keep gaining market share.
